Welcome to the Highways Service Information Centre
We carry out regular inspections of roads and pavements on our network, but we know that issues may come up between these inspections. These could be potholes or other road surface issues, damaged street lights, overgrown trees or missing lit bollards.
You can tell us about maintenance issues online by using our highways reporting tool.
If you think there’s a risk to public safety, do not report it online, please call us immediately on 0345 603 7631 or if you have hearing problems you can use our text phone service on 0345 758 5592.

You can use track it to check if we already know about an issue or track the progress of an issue you’ve told us about.
This is our new Beta tool and we are still refining it. You can still report an issue on our current tool if you prefer.
If you do have any issues with the tool please use the feedback popup box to let us know, but please don't use the feedback popup box to report highway maintenance issues.

Use the multifunctional search box (within the map) to enter an address, postcode or area. You can also use a what3words address, by selecting that option in the multifunctional search box. An option to 'Use current location' will appear when you select the search box and can be used if you're at or near the location. You can also zoom in to the map.
Select the map menu (within the map) to open the legend to find out what the coloured pins mean.
Once you have located the area you wish to report, select the location on the map (you need to select the location on the map even if you have used what3words or 'Use current location' to find the location), use 'Report an issue here' to continue to report your issue.
You can change the location by selecting somewhere else on the map. If you need help please see the 'How to use Tell us and Track it' guide.
Please remember that Internet Explorer is no longer supported and the map requires a modern browser, such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Safari.
Our map is not accessible to keyboard or screen readers - can't see or use the map?
